Like the DCA says, this is one of the best routes at Starr Mountain. The roof near the end is exposed but nicely protected.
Starting on a short arete, sometimes tenuous moves lead to a short roof with nice horizontals. Pull the roof and continue to the top, enjoying the spectacular view of the Hiwassee River.
Starts 10' right of Vulcans Do Not Bluff, across from the Pleasing to the Touch face.
Small to medium nuts, cams. Gear anchor at the top.

PG-13 in my book; the protection before the crux it not all that good.
